Get your hunting rifle, boots and trusty Labrador retriever: it is duck hunting season on the Nintendo Wii. Detn8 Games announces its first title for the Wii called Ultimate Duck Hunting. For those of you who would rather hunt than frag this game might be for you. The game is due out in July, but for now enjoy the screenshots they sent over.

The ducks are on the pond (and in the air) as Detn8 Games Ltd., a new player in the video game market, announces its first title – Ultimate Duck Hunting for the Wii home video game system.

Set for release in July 2007, Ultimate Duck Hunting is a realistic hunting simulation that features both shooting and retrieving. Choose your dog (yellow, chocolate, or black Labrador retriever) and train him to respond to your commands, all controlled by player motions using the Wii Remote. Gear up with name-brand guns, camouflage, and decoys – then it’s off into the wilderness to set up decoys, use duck calls, and ultimately become a crack shot using the Wii Remote to aim and fire at tough-to-down mallard, hen, black, and teal ducks.

“The Wii Remote plays a major role in Ultimate Duck Hunting,” says Jeff Hill, VP at Detn8 Games. “Obviously, it’s the perfect device for aim-and-shoot – and commanding your dog with Wii Remote motion adds to the immersion in the simulation.”

Ultimate Duck Hunting features four modes of play: Single Hunt where you score points by shooting a required number of ducks, Career Mode in which you hunt over several seasons, create your own hunter and dog, and improve your dog by earning points, Multi-player Mode where two players compete head-to-head on a split screen, and Training Mode, a mini-game for training your dog.

Players hunt and retrieve ducks in six environments, including Stuttgart (Arkansas), Oacoma (South Dakota), Oak Island (Minnesota), Old Harbor (Alaska), Coldwater (Mississippi), and Halifax (Virginia).
